Me & Mine: A Family Portrait Project | January 2013

When Lucy from Dear Beautiful approached me, and some other bloggers all listed on a beautiful badge below, about an exciting new Family Portrait Project I couldn't resist but to join in.
We have hardly any photos of us as a family of four, and this project encourages us to take a photo of the four of us together once a month.
This project isn't just open for those of us added on the badge, anyone can join in and link up their post on our blogs (if you link up your post will automatically show up on everyones widget, you won't have to manually enter your link on everyones blog)
I'll also be adding bits and pieces about our family each month, so maybe exciting news, milestones, achievements and also things we have done as a family that month.

I'm sure that not only will this encourage us to take photos of us as a proper family, but also for me to use my tripod and to use the self-timer on my camera!

We left it late this month, I wanted to get a photo at the weekend when we were at my sister in laws but I completely forgot to take my camera so it was a simple self-timer job in our lounge. The boys all have new haircuts. You just have to excuse the lack of effort on my part (little make up and fat puffy face) and Harry's somewhat grumpy face, he doesn't like the camera flash.

Things we've done as a family....
We've had fun, and not-so-much-fun in the snow.
We've had an overnight stay at my sister in laws and booked our first holiday abroad as a family of four.
We've had a couple of meals out (Prezzo in Aldeburgh and Fusion in Norwich)
We had a day of shopping and then sausage and chips on Gorleston Sea Front.
